Method 1: Fix iPhone 6 Black Screen Bug by Enabling Siri

1. We were able to fix this bug by simply enabling Siri. If Siri is disabled, go to Settings > General > Siri and turn Siri on.
2. Tap Settings then Display & Brightness then change Display Zoom View from “Standard” to “Zoomed” or “Zoomed” to “Standard”; depending on your original setting.
3. If the tips above does not solve this problem, try this: Tap Settings; Display & Brightness then tap Display Zoom View and choose Zoomed and tap “Set”.

Method 2: Force your Device to Restart

Simply, if you think the former solution is a little complex, you can try the method 2. But I can’t guarantee that this solution is effective for everyone. 

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time for at least 10 seconds until you see the Apple logo.
